Animated version of a phoney and artificial "reality" program falls flat.

One thousand channels and nothing's on. Simply call it the 'Boob tube'. You get the idea...

So many of these channels are saturated with blatant infomercials and hack wannabee producers groping for even a few eyeballs to curry favor with household product makers to grab some advertising revenue. That seems to be the genesis of so many "reality" programs.

Among those hoards of unimaginative 'media moguls' few have the artistic talent to draw and animate a piece of work like this.

It's quite apparent that the narrative of 'Dreams and Desires' is not about your old aunty fumbling about with her shiny new video camera while she makes her way around town.

In fact, it lacks any substantial narrative at all.

While I admire the talent and animation style of 'Dreams and Desires', the narrative, which is little more than a cheap imitation of those "reality" programs, leaves me cold.

If Joanna Quinn had shown half as much imagination in developing the narrative as she obviously displays in the animation, this could have been an excellent effort.

Maybe she never saw the PSAs (public service announcements) for 'turn off the TV' day?
